raised within the leadership. >> mitt romney lost the women's vote by 11 points. >> having said that, a lot of the mind set just to give you back drop on this in the gop is we don't do sort of fill in the blank here just because we have a woman, put a woman this lays. it's very much senior based. it's very much time tenured and all of that. but there are senior members at the caucus who are female who can advance i think legitimately without question about their preparedness or readiness to do the job. this is an optic issue, but easily resolved. figure those last two spots with capable women and have the noise go away. >> with a republicans are saying is that three women were named to leadership positions in the republican conference including washington's kathy mcmorris rogers who will become the fourth highest ranking member in the house. let me lay for you what tom davis said last night on hardball. >> only really had one woman this contention and that was candace miller. and i've been through these things. they're knife fights inside. but mcmorris rogers beat a very able man for
that, you know, that was the argument that mitt romney made, and he lost. and keep in mind, it's not just that president obama won, but the exit polls showed that half of the folks who voted for governor romney agreed with obama, that taxes on the high-income folks had to go up. so the challenge on the republican side, and it is tough, is folks like kevin mccarthy did get elected. and in his district, his no-tax pledge worked for him. these guys are in a very tough spot because they know at the end of the day they're going to have to raise these taxes. but doing so will cause an immense amount of political pain. that's why in my view, it's probably likely that we won't get a deal before january 1st. but on january 3rd, the senate sends a bill over. where now we're voting on a bill to lower taxes. the norquist pledge becomes irrelevant. in fact, they comply with the norquist pledge by voting for a bill that would provide tax relief for 98% of americans. so i just think this is a very difficult political situation on the republican side. you know, the speaker clearly knows that r
health. one a day 50+. >>> to politics now, mitt romney found himself a job. he will rejoin marriott international. he's actually served on the board before and stepped down to run for governor and president. incidentally, romney is named for jay willard marriott, the owner of the hotel chain. >>> anna wintour might be looking for an ambassadorship for the uk or france. >>> new york's mayor corey cory booker starts his food stamp challenge. >> starting to cut through the prejudice and ignorance about people who use supplemental programs and get people to a higher level of consciousness and understand that the common investment in programs like this and they are important. >>> newt gingrich is getting a cameo on parks and recreation. >>> game on, movie fans. they gave out their awards and the bulk went to two live stories, "lincoln" and "zero dark 30." well, anyway, the l.a. times had a fascinating article about how this influential group, the critics, is an oscar predictor. and by the way, they honored frankenweenie. you can prevent gas with beano meltaways, or treat gas with these a
, to a great extent, economically on got policy and government programs, seeming to echo governor romney's 47% remarks. that same evening paul ryan appeared to reject governor sununu's comments, though he didn't address them directly. >> these attempts to divide americans into our voters and their voters, let's be really clear, republicans must steer far clear of that trap. >> joining me now, cnbc contributor tony frat owe and former white house deputy press secretary under president george w. bush and managing partner at hamilton place strategies kiki mclean, senior adviser to the 2008 hillary clinton presidential campaign. good morning. >> good morning. >> tony, do republicans sit back and wish governor sununu would quit talking? >> not only is it offensive to a large part of the lack trat, it happens to be wrong. republicans did very well and in fact governor romney did very well among lower income voters. so it's wrong but we shouldn't be talking that way. we should be talking about all americans and economic opportunity for all americans and trying to achieve that. that's the important t
% of the latino vote we heard romney campaign manager saying he regretted running hard to the right in the primary. the opposing view is the gop's latino problem isn't based on immigration issues. there's a pew exit poll of hispanic voters taken in november found immigration isn't in the top four issues. is too much made a political issue how important it is to the political community? >> number one, if you ask latinos what is the most important thing, my job, the economy, educating my children, crime. before the latino audiences, political audiences will listen to you as a candidate. you first cannot be mean, nasty, spirited towards immigrants. if you are they simply shut you off. so i think the problem that the republicans had is latinos said you're being so unfair, you're being so anti-immigrant, we feel personally offended by that and plus it is part of our core value. they just don't listen, so i think it was critical to the republican message that people weren't listening, they weren't buying in because they won't tune in if you're in that mean. >> the "wall street journal" is reporting cong
